Field Trip

I started yesterday afternoon’s explorations at Whimzeyland, an artist’s yard in Safety Harbor. In the past couple years, the colorful influence has even spread to nearby yards, making for a bright and fun neighborhood.

My next stop was downtown. I wandered along Main Street popping into galleries and shops, while enjoying the tempting scents from the many eateries. The waterfront village features a tiny harbor, a fishing pier, and a lengthy boardwalk.

I was most impressed by the massive live oak in the center of town. At well over 300 years old it is recognized as the oldest one in Pinellas County.

Before heading home I stopped off at the Folly Farms Nature Preserve. The park contains a large community garden, nature trails, and a small wetland area. It was a lovely afternoon outing!
